Re: how to reprogram a alfa 156 key phob
u can replace the red key with the black key but u will also need to replace the body computer, lock barrels, etc. not an easy project. so stick with the red key.
what do u mean ur key fob is "smashed up"? if its damaged beyond repair, u can go to a dealer and get them to order a brand new key for u from alfa romeo. u will need ur chassis number.
if the circuit board inside the key is damaged, u can get a replacement circuit board from mangoletsi for about 3-4 quid. then u need to get the new circuit board reprogrammed.
if the key fob plastic is damaged and only the removable side, u can replace this from a used key.
if u can somehow get a used key and replace the metal insert from ur old key into the used key, u will still need to get the used key's immobiliser transponder and alarm circuit board programmed for ur car. u need the examiner tool, ur alarm code card and ur mechanical code card to do this. so the only place u can do it is at the dealers. also bring along any other spare keys u have at the same time. they will all need to be reprogrammed for ur car.
